minnesota congresswoman tea party darling michele bachmann opens up her mouth i either kring or laugh -- cringe or laugh out loud. how can somebody who is so out of touch with mainstream america, somebody who's so ignorant who's so dangerous, be a member of the u.s. house of representatives? many people were hoping that after her disastrous presidential run that ms. bachmann would fade quietly into the background. well i'm sorry to tell you she has no intention of going anywhere. she is running for re-election. this despite the fact she barely held on to her seat in 2010. she actually spent almost $12 million that year. more than any other congressional candidate in the country and she won with just 52% of the vote. tonight we want to introduce you to the brave soul who is we start at american motels with $2,000 in savings. >> times were tight with two young kids. >> we worked hard. >> we were blessed. >> it is time we help the middle class succeed, too. that's why i'm running for congress. >> he's the man who hopes
thing michelle bachmann. b-16. wait until you hear what she said about the president. >> my belief and my opinion that barack obama has been the most dangerous president we have ever had on american foreign policy. >> cenk: come on i mean, they're so over the top i don't think they are believable any more. people see that and say what an idiot. >> michelle bachmann is in a lot of trouble. in her polls out of her election race graves down by two points. that's major. that's a toss up. that's within the margin of error. >> cenk: michelle loses her own congressional seat. that is awesome. >> it could very well happen. >> cenk: it could happen. thank you michael. great analysis, let me just tell you guys something. we're going to talk about the embay isembassies, but that clip about mitt romney saying that middle class is $200,000 to $250,000, i would say the most important thing is that clip. because it's not anywhere near true and it turns everybody off when they see it. huge news this week. now when we come back, who is the ideological godmother, ayn rand. wait until you see the cli
to michele bachmann to alan west, are they really feeling the heat? are they seeing the ground shift under them so they're beginning to think the tea party wave has crested? >> well, look, democrats want to use these figures bachmann, steve king, alan west, because they're huge targets and they raise a ton of money. they say the most incendiary things and they get democrats fired up. now, joe walsh is in trouble. he's got a tough district in northern chicago. and tammy duckworth is a pretty good candidate with a pretty good personal story. i think republicans sort of have a wash that one away. but michele bachmann has raised and spent $16 million during this campaign. more than any house member than the speaker boehner. she's had a huge fund-raising advantage. same thing with alan west down in florida. $10 million. are they targets, good for fund-raising for democrats? but when it comes down to it in the house races when you're raising that kind of money presidential campaign money. obviously she was a candidate.
would think that rick perry and michele bachmann had just learned the u.s. was on the road to armageddon. actually, they were reacting to the decision by the supreme court to uphold president obama's affordable care act probably does signal the end of time. let us be honest. chief justice roberts to the disappointment of many conservatives sided with his liberal peers is actually no lefty. and if mitt romney is elected president and gets several supreme court picks justice roberts, chief justice will preside over the most conservative court in our nation's history. and joining us from new york to discuss the intersection of presidential politics and the supreme court is jeffrey toobin, the author of the "the oath, the obama white house and the supreme court." jeffrey toobin, so glad to have you inside "the war room." >> great to talk to you governor. >> jennifer: you and your great books on the series of the court. will you go down in history as the documenter of all of the good gossip behind the pillars
are fueling it. >> jennifer: name names? >> michele bachmann. joe walsh in illinois. alan west in florida. >> jennifer: you're naming all of the tea party members. >> maybe coincidence, maybe not. exactly. we're happy to be the one of the day. >> jennifer: you're a prolific communicator as well. in addition to speaking. you have a column that you talked about what happened with the "newsweek" cover which was inflammatory to begin with. you called -- there was a call from the magazine for people to discuss the coverage of islamic or muslim rage from twitter with the hash tag muslim rage. so i want to take a look at some of the responses that were answers to your call. first one, this is muslim rage. that moment when you discover you're out of coffee beans and your only choice is freeze-dried instant coffee or none. outrageous rage. >> i'm getting outrageous. some rage. i have to contain myself. >> jennifer: when you're trying to focus on your prayer at the mosque and someone's phone goes off blasting gangnan style.
bachmann or something. >> less the reporters you hear -- michele bachmann, santorum was up there, the gifts that keep on giving. >> bill: clarence, i have to ask you as the chief columnist for "the chicago tribune," one of many hats that you wear, the chicago teacher's strike is over. kids are back in school. who won that contest? >> i think in the short term, the teachers won. in the long run emanuel will. but this is a contest that, in my view, bill, had no winners. it just had losers which were the students because they lost over a week in the classroom that they sorely need. the problem is the city doesn't have any money. in fact, i've been -- i've been a journalist in chicago since 1969 under the original mayor daley, richard the first i have seen mayors come and go. one thing we all have in common is when the teachers want a new contract they go behind closed doors and the mayors give them whatever they want to try to avoid a strike. they used to have strikes so commonly that students would just expect them
, you had herman cain newt gingrich, and michele bachmann -- >> 49% of the country just won't latch on to it. >> it's like that bubble you talk about. they think their narrow view is everybody. >> john: this leads back to this paul ryan thing we have talked about fleetingly over the last few days. paul ryan made a statement in colorado last friday about medical marijuana. and congressman ryan said my personal position has been let the states decide what to do about these things. that is the paul ryan point of view. well, paul ryan said that, and right away mitt romney's people were doing damage control, and now saying that paul ryan -- >> he was high when he said it. [ laughter ] >> john: no, he completely agrees on keeping marijuana illegal, and people who smoke it even if they are sick and have cancer deserve to go to jail. and in the 2007 campaign we have a clip where a very sick man -- a fellow who was -- had cancer, in a wheelchair met governor romney at a campaign event, and asked him what he should do. governor romneys response was so callus and cowardly
it with jews. we saw it with communists even. the reason that people are making the claim that michele bachmann's anti-muslim witch-hunt in congress harks back to the day of joseph mccarthy because we've experienced the bouts of hate before. the real difference though today is that there is an active network of individuals that use tools like the internet to spread their venom in society and what they have effectively done is metastasized the social cancer growing among us. >> eliot: now part of the problem as you would see it is you have the voice of lee she wrote the cover story of "newsweek" this week from within the islamic community saying those who spread what you view as fearmongerring are what? there is a core kernel of violence in the religion. how do you respond to a voice like hers that is so powerful when people watch her? >> the "newsweek" cover was undoubtedly you know, terrible. and tina brown, folks at "newsweek" should be ashamed of themselves. asking ellie to write a cover story called muslim rage would
they flirted with this idea of nominating people like herman cain and michele bachmann. >> stephanie: clint eastwood talking to a chair was the speech of the convention. how sad is this? 20% of viewers rated eastwood's bizarre speech as the high light, compared 17% for mitt romney, and 9% for paul ryan. >> their convention was so negative and such an attempt to actually introduce this guy who has been running for president for ten years. this convention paints a story of the president and first lady while connecting the policies. >> stephanie: i really wanted to say, this is how you do a convention. >> that's the way you do it. >> stephanie: and he did it with such charm and humor, in a way -- it was devastating. >> it was an indictment absolutely. and so much better than george w. bush's speech in tampa. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: you almost can't wait to here what they are saying in the right-wing world, because you are like really? dana lohse -- who was it -- was like i didn't think -- he was not at his best? really? well, you better hell hope he doesn't get any bet

an autograph to michele bachmann. so he was a huge hit on the house floor and now that he's returned. >> bill: yeah, right. >> any extra campaign money. never hurts. >> it was a real circus when he showed up because people only had about 20 or 30 seconds at a time and he's walking between the house floor and the private room so all of the press wanted to get something from him and the reporters were tripping over banisters and chairs, cameramen's lens popped right off and flew in the air. it is a real wild time with paul ryan power walking through the house last week. >> bill: i saw congressman charlie wrangle at a reception last week, the evening of paul ryan's triumphant return to the house and charlie was telling me that when he walked in, all of the republicans are -- they stand, they're applauding, they walked down to the well. they're applauding and charlie walked right down there with them and paul ryan spotted charlie wrangle and said what are you doing here and charlie says no, no, no, i want to thank you, too.
